MultiSim’s collaboration with NC3Rs to reduce animal testing

University of Sheffield's researchers are trying to find ways to reduce animal testing in preclinical trials by using computer models and medical imaging. One application of this technology, also known as in silico methods, is to study the effect of skeletal diseases such as osteoporosis and its treatments. Using in silico methods, researchers conducted a longitudinal study ...
